Provide care to the elderly people
„Provide care to the elderly people” is a comprehensive project, focused on elderly people, living in the small towns and villages in the Veliko Tarnovo region. The project represents a set of measures, implemented by various institutions, organizations, NGOs and private sector, such as the Ministry of Interior, local authorities, social services, the responsible business and private security companies.
Some of the activities include wide and constant awareness campaigns on different topics, formations of volunteer squads, “borrow a grandchild” initiative, hotline between the city halls of all villages and small towns in the Veliko Tarnovo region and many others.
These joint activities strive to increase the level of safety among elderly people, as well as to prevent and decrease criminal activities against them. The project also contributes with plenty of social activities that help the elderly feel part of society.
The Project started in September 2013 and is still running.
